Overview

The compelling, funny, and poignant story of the unlikely marriage of a pro football player and an aspiring doctor. Jan Thatcher, a wide-eyed Iowa freshman coed, met Karl Kassulke in 1962 at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, where he was a football hero about to enter the world of NFL football. Told from Jan's perspective, Football Wife is set in a time when America was rapidly changing from conservative to free wheeling, from closet alcoholism to an awakening to the consequences of alcohol abuse. All the while, the sexual, racial, and women's revolutions were raging. A true story told with memories of love and compassion, its cautionary message offers hope to anyone struggling with destructive issues in their relationships.
